Colonial Theatre Noisemaker

posted by gotapaddle on December 13, 2007 at 10:59 am

Found in my collection is a wooden paddle noisemaker from the Colonial Theatre Dayton, Ohio, harkening back to Vaudeville with the Prince of Hilarity N.T.G. and his “Fairest of the Fair” Revue. Can anyone shed light on who N.T.G. was?

(Thanks to Peggy L. for providing the photo.)

N.T.G. was a radio announcer famous at the time and known as the “Voice of the Great White Way”. I believe he broadcasted on radio station WHN a Loew’s owned station. N.T.G. stands for Nils T. Granlund.
